Life & Works of Gustav Klimt

Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918) is one of the most important Austrian painters and one of the most representative artists of Art Nouveau, an artistic style known in Italy as "Liberty". 

His works are characterized by the strokes and harmonic curves of his subjects, where abstraction, elegance and decoration combine themselves. Klimt's women are ethereal, sweet, romantic but, at the same time, sensually malicious. 

The female figures painted by Klimt, often, return to the theme of femme fatale. Indeed he had a deep admiration for the women's body, which went beyond greatly the art world too. 

His most important artwork is The Kiss of course. It was displayed for the first time in 1908 and today it is exposed in the Österreichisch Galerie (Belvedere Gallery in Vienna). A man and a woman tenderly unite themselves in a sweet hug that lasts forever: two opposite universes that are united by love.
